East Zorra-Tavistock Resolution re: High Speed Rail

At its meeting of February 21, 2018, Township of East Zorra-Tavistock Council considered and unanimously passed the following resolution:


Moved By: Shirley MCCALL HANLON
Seconded By: Mike CAMPBELL
Whereas the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock understands that the proposed Ontario Government High Speed Rail plan is in the early stages and many details are to be determined through Environmental Assessments yet to be completed;
And whereas, some urban Ontario Municipalities feel that they may benefit from High Speed Rail;
And whereas, there is great concern in rural Ontario, and the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock in particular, with respect to the significant loss of Prime Agricultural Land, the potential for dead-ended roads creating increased emergency response time, creating increased school transportation time, the severing of farm businesses, disruption to community cohesion, reducing local resident access to Municipal services, and the health, safety and wellbeing of our local residents;
Therefore be it resolved that the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock does not oppose improved rail service in South Western Ontario;
And that the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock does take the following position on the proposed High Speed Rail Plan going forward;
That High Speed Rail is only one viable option to improve transportation in Southwestern Ontario;
That the Environmental Assessment must also include other viable options to improve transportation in Southwestern Ontario;
That all committees created for the purpose of HSR also have representation from the Councils and community members/organizations directly affected by this proposed HSR plan;
AND THAT, the resolution of this motion be forwarded to the Premier of Ontario, Minister of Transportation, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, as well as the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, Terry Ross (Concerned Citizens of HSR) and Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
CARRIED.

The Township has also be granted a delegation with the Minister of Transportation the Hon. Kathryn McGarry at the upcoming OGRA Conference in Toronto.  Township representatives attending OGRA will use this opportunity and others at the conference to make sure the Provincial Government understands the impact this proposal could have on the community and put forth viable alternatives that should be considered.

211 assists Ontarians in navigating community, social and health services


If you’re looking for help in finding services in your community, the answers to your questions are just three numbers away: 211.

211 is a free service. Calling 2-1-1 is an easy way to access information about financial, emotional, social and basic needs support in Oxford County at any time of day, in over 150 languages. It can also be used to contact police, fire or paramedic services in non-emergency situations, which helps reduce the number of non-emergency calls coming to 9-1-1.

The United Way and Ontario 211 have released call statistics for 2017. In Oxford County, 860 calls were made to 2-1-1 for non-emergency help last year. The top reasons for calls were residents seeking information on education, health, utility assistance and income support/financial assistance.

Whether you are seeking support for an elderly parent, looking for healthcare services, or need financial assistance, 2-1-1 is the right call to make.
